Trump pardons are obviously for sale.

There's news that Trump is weighing a pardon for Steve Bannon. He's "weighing" it. Either pardon your corrupt inner circle or don't pardon them. But to announce "I am weighing it," suggests the scales need to be tilted more towards Trump. The pardon is just hanging there over Steve Bannon's head, and Trump is effectively saying "I'm thinking about it, but I need a better deal."

If I announced I was "weighing" whether to give a billion dollar contract to one particular person over others, it would look obvious that I was looking for a bribe. Trump is doing the same thing. These pardons are obviously an exercise in quid pro quo. It would be out of character for Trump, the ultimate grifter, if he wasn't cashing in.

1. Pardons are chump change

Imagine what he was getting for massive defense contracts, arms sales classified info.
We really need a special prosecutor, probably a building full of them to sort it all out.

2. Think about Bannons role at a potential media competitor to Trump.

Trump wats a simple non compete from bannon to keep him in line...and off air unless itís on TrumpTV.

4. speaking of pardons.

Has anyone seen any of his war criminal pardon recipients in the insurrection? You would think they would be grateful and could be of service because of their "service." If any are identified they can be jailed again and not pardoned.
